Fr. John Eudes Bamberger, OCSO is a Trappist abbot at Genesee NY. He has just posted an article (11 page typescript), "Thomas Merton: Memories of a Brother Monk." As a psychiatrist he sheds considerable light on Merton's absent father and his affair with a Louisville nurse. But he rescues Merton by describing his true devotion to his abbot of 20 years, Dom James.
